Report: RB Dion Lewis retiring after 102 games

Running back Dion Lewis, a Super Bowl LI champion with the New England Patriots, is retiring after a decade in the NFL, ESPN reported Friday.

The 30-year-old free agent played for the New York Giants last year and reportedly has drawn interest from other teams as recently as last week.

The 5-foot-8 Lewis retires with 5,678 career all-purpose yards and 22 touchdowns in 102 games (27 starts) with the Philadelphia Eagles (2011-12), Patriots (2015-17), Tennessee Titans (2018-19) and Giants. He missed the 2013 season with the Cleveland Browns due to a broken leg. He signed with the Indianapolis Colts in 2014 but did not appear in a game that season.

Lewis played all 16 games for the Giants last season and posted 242 yards from scrimmage and three touchdowns.

He rushed 567 times for 2,425 yards (4.3-yard average) and 13 touchdowns and caught 191 passes for 1,408 yards and eight scores. Lewis also returned 81 kickoffs for 1,845 yards and one TD.

Lewis had six carries for 27 yards and one catch for two yards in New England’s come-from-behind 34-28 overtime win against the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI on Feb. 5, 2017.

Lewis was a fifth-round pick by the Eagles out of Pitt, where he was the Big East Rookie of the Year and Offensive Player of the Year in 2009.
